14. I'm a PCP (precinct committee person) for my county Democratic party, which

in late 2015 brought me into contact with many, many older white voters who came to volunteer. An easy majority of them said that Bernie Sanders had inspired them to become involved, and some had never even registered before. After the primaries, the number of them who continued to show up for canvassing or phone-banking dwindled. The folks I met were not bigots or racists-- they felt their needs had been forgotten until Bernie came along. When he was no longer in the picture, they were back where they'd started.
